IRVINE, CA ., Jan 18, 2017 Evans Brewing, a producer of award-winning craft beers and owner of The Public House restaurant and tap room, today announced that Trader Joe's grocery chain will begin rolling out their Pollen Nation Honey Blonde in 22 oz. bottles to its 170 plus locations in Southern and Northern California. Trader Joe's joins the SoCal grocery chain locations of Vons/Albertsons/Pavilions, Ralph's, Sprouts, Whole Foods, Bevmo, and Total Wine & More that also carry our 22 oz. lineup; Pollen Nation Honey Blonde, Oaklore Brown Ale, Chocolatte Chocolate Porter and The KrHOPen India Pale Ale.
"It is a great accomplishment to be part of the craft beer offerings at Trader Joe's," commented Mike Rapport, CEO of Evans Brewing Company. "Trader Joe's always puts on an effective sales effort when they bring on new items to their stores. With that effort, we are confident that we will do well and will get orders for the balance of our 22 oz. offerings in the near future," continued Mike Rapport.
"Breaking out of the local market with our 22 oz. offerings is a big accomplishment. We now have joined only a select few Orange County craft brands have had a statewide rollout in a chain store as large as Trader Joe's," reflected Mike Rapport. "This may be a first step in a larger state wide roll out with the other chain grocery stores we currently serve where we have only Orange County and surrounding areas covered," concluded Mike Rapport.
